Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, transmitted 
a communication addressed to him under date of 
June 23, 1949,' from R. F. Whitehead, Rear Admiral, 
U. S. Navy, reading as follows: 

"Dear Mayor Kennelly — This morning I was 
greatly interested and pleased to read in the morn- 
ing paper of the honor conferred on the late 
'Butch' O'Hare by the City of Chicago in renaming 
the Douglas Airport 'O'Hare Field, Chicago Inter- 
national Airport'. 

"I knew 'Butch' O'Hare personally, as a friend 
and fellow officer, over a period of years and I am 
fully aware of his accomplishments in the war in 
defense of our country. The civilian population as 
well as the military services produced many men 
and women of great courage and devotion to their 
country whose memory would be deserving of such 
honor and recognition. However, the City of Chi- 
cago could have selected no more deserving in- 
dividual nor greater hero than one of its own resi- 
dents, Lieutenant Commander 'Butch' O'Hare. 

"Kindest personal regards." 

— Ordered Published and Placed on File. 



Proposal for Approval of Application by Chicago 
Housing Authority to Public Housing Admin- 
istration for Preliminary Loan for 
Surveys and Planning Pursuant to 
Housing Act of 1949 — 
Referred. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, submitted 
the following communication: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

July 7, 1949. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — It is a pleasure for me to forward 
the attached letter and resolution concerning an 
application which the Chicago Housing Authority 
proposes to make to the Public Housing Adminis- 
tration pursuant to the requirements of the recently 
enacted Housing Act of 1949. 

As the Council knows, the law provides specifical- 
ly for the elimination of sub-standard housing and 
housing of low-income families. The survey of the 
Chicago Housing Authority indicates that the mini- 
mum need for additional housing accommodations in 
Chicago today is upwards of 270,000 dwellings. In 
this number are included 144,000 extremely sub- 
standard housing units. These figures also show 
that families with three or more children in the 
low-income class total 87,000. The income of these 
families is $2600.00 or less per year. 

The resolution contains factual statements and 1 it 
is my understanding that copies of the resolution 
will be available to the membership of the Council 
for the council meeting on Friday morning. 

Because of the vital necessity of proceeding with 
this important program, it is my recommendation 
and sincere hope that action be taken at an early 
date approving the resolution thereby enabling the 
Chicago Housing Authority to make application and 
take such other steps as are necessary to proceed 
with the program. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Becker moved to adopt the proposed reso- 
lution transmitted with the foregoing communication. 
Seconded by Alderman Merriam. 

Unanimous consent being refused for action on said 
proposed resolution without committee consideration, 
Alderman Becker moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily to permit such action. Seconded by Alder- 
man Carey. 

The motion to suspend the rules was lost, and said 
proposed resolution was Referred to the Committee 
on Housing.

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

Ordinance and the traffic ordinance of the City of 
Chicago, together with recommendations. — Referred 
to the Committee on Traffic and Public Safety. 

The following transmittal letter accompanied the 
report: 

Northwestern University 
Evanston, Illinois 



The Traffic Institute 
1704 Judson Avenue 



May 27, 1949. 



The Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, 
Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
City Hall, 
Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Mayor Kennelly — Transmitted herewith 
is a report of the comparative study of the Model 
Traffic Ordinance and the Traffic Ordinance of the 
City of Chicago, together with recommendations 
therewith concerning the revision of the Traffic Or- 
dinance of the City of Chicago. 

This study was made by Robert L. Donigan, coun- 
sel for the Traffic Institute, Northwestern Univer- 
sity, for the Traffic Division of the International 
Association of Chiefs of Police, in accordance with 
your request in connection with the general traffic 
reorganization plan for the city being directed by 
the latter organization. 

It has long been recognized that the universal na- 
ture of traffic problems demands uniform regulation 
to the highest practical extent — which means, 
basically, uniform laws. This applies with particular 
force to the nation's second largest city, which 
yearly attracts tens of thousand's of motorists from 
all over the country. A factual analysis of existing 
traffic laws, in light of nationally accepted stand- 
ards and practices, is a fundamental step toward 
achieving basic uniformity. 

These nationally accepted standards have been 
embodied in the Model Traffic Ordinance for cities 
and the Uniform Vehicle Code for states and have 
been developed through the cooperative efforts of 
all segments of the people, representing every type 
of community and state from one end of America to 
the other. 

The Model Traffic Ordinance and Uniform Vehicle 
Code are fully representative, technically sound in 
principle and eminently workable. Furthermore, 
they are kept up-to-date by periodic revisions, made 
as a result of observing their practical operation 
and in the light of increases in motor travel and ad- 
vances effected in vehicles and roads. 

The specific objectives of this study have been : 

1. To acquaint the responsible officials with the 
comparative details of Chicago's present or- 
dinances and the Model Traffic Ordinance. 

2. To afford officials a common ground for 
accurately determining such legislative 
changes as may be necessary or desirable to 
bring the local ordinances into conformance 
with nationally accepted laws and practices. 

3. To aid such officials in arriving at such a 
goal by making specific recommendations 
for their consideration in determining such 
legislative changes. 

Revision of the Traffic Ordinance of Chicago to 
bring it up to these high standards will be another 
progressive step of your administration on the road 
to making Chicago a safer and better city. 

We wish to express our sincere appreciation and 
thanks for the generous assistance and counsel of 
Corporation Counsel Benjamin S. Adamowski and 



his assistants, David Lefkovitz and William Barth; 
Leslie J. Sorenson, Director, and Ralph F. Michel of 
the Bureau of Street Traffic; Lieutenant Joseph E. 
O'Malley and Sergeant Arthur G. West of the Traf- 
fic Bureau of the Chicago Police Department; Al- 
bert H. Seery, assistant to the City Clerk ; Elmer A. 
Reed, assistant to the Public Vehicle License Com- 
missioner; John D. Hayes, assistant to the chief 
justice of the Municipal Court of Chicago; Arthur 
G. Boston, assistant traffic engineer of the Chicago 
Street Traffic Commission; Richard G. Fencl, as- 
sistant traffic engineer of the Chicago Park Dis- 
trict; Lieutenant Robert Kelleher of the Chicago 
Park District Police Department; Isadore Rosin, 
assistant state's attorney of Cook County; Louis R. 
Morony, Director, and Anthony Antony of the Uni- 
form Laws Division of the Automotive Safety Foun- 
dation. The cooperation of these individuals and 
other officials has been invaluable in bringing this 
project to successful completion. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) F. W. Kreml, 

Director.

Court Decision in Favor of City in Litigation Involv- 
ing Payment of 1929 School Tax Anticipation 
Warrants. 

Also a communication from the Corporation Counsel 
addressed to the City Council under date of July 6, 
1949, signed by J. F. Grossman, Special Assistant Cor- 
poration Counsel, reading as follows : 

"Subject: Claims of $10,000,000 against City 
for payment of 1929 school tax an- 
ticipation warrants. 

"Gentlemen — We are pleased to report that we 
were successful in the trial court against claims 
which threatened to impose upon the City an un- 
anticipated liability of ten million dollars. Edith 
Schreiner on behalf of herself and all other holders 
of unpaid 1929 educational tax anticipation war- 
rants filed suit against the City of Chicago and 
the Board of Education of the City of Chicago in 
the Superior Court of Cook County on April 18, 
1946, case No. 46-S-7673. This is one of a number 
of cases instituted during the same year in the 
United States District Court and in the State courts 
of this county. 

"The subject matter of these cases has been in 
continuous litigation for nearly fifteen years. Suits 
were first instituted against the Board of Education 
and the City of Chicago by Norfolk and Western 
Railroad Company and were followed by other suits 
in the federal courts and in the State courts of 
Cook County. The claims then were that the Board 
and the City were liable to account to the holders 
of unpaid 1929 school warrants for alleged unlaw- 
ful payment of outstanding warrants in numerical 
order of issue instead of on a pro-rata basis. The 
federal courts held the City and the Board of Edu- 
cation liable to account. (Norfolk & W. R. Co. v. 
Bd. of Education, 88 F. (2) 462.) In most cases 
the City succeeded in avoiding liability because, 
as we contended, the City Comptroller and City 
Treasurer in handling school funds were acting for 
the Chicago school district and not for the City of 
Chicago. 

"After many judgments were rendered against 
the Board of Education a bond issue was authorized 
to fund the judgments, but the Supreme Court of 
Illinois held the issue void because the Chicago 
school district could not be subjected to judgments 
for the wrongful acts of the members of the board. 
(Leviton v. Bd. of Education, 374 111. 594; 385 111. 
599.) After long intervening litigation in the fed- 
eral courts and the State courts, the Supreme Court 
of Illinois decided that the proper order of payment 
of 1929 school warrants was the numerical order 
of issue. (State Life Ins. Co. v. Bd. of Education, 
.394 HI. 301; 401 111. 252.) 

"In the meantime, attorneys for the holders of 
unpaid 1929 school warrants discovered that the 
City of Chicago received payment from the proceeds 



of the sale of 1929 educational warrants for the 
redemption of 1928 educational warrants which, it 
was charged, the City had purchased in December 

1928 and in January 1929. This payment amounted 
to $4,726,854.98. Plaintiffs charged that this pay- 
ment was a misappropriation and diversion of 1929 
tax funds which were pledged to the payment of 

1929 educational warrants. They demanded the 
restoration of the amount so diverted by the City 
to the school educational fund together with in- 
terest at 5% per annum from the date of the 
diversion, all of which they claimed should be 
applied to the payment of 1929 school educational 
warrants. 

"We filed a motion to strike the Schreiner com- 
plaint claiming that the transaction relating to the 
1929 school warrants was, in fact, a loan of City 
money to be used for the payment of school teach- 
ers and other employees, although in form the 
ordinance and resolution authorizing the transac- 
tion used terms of purchase on the legally ques- 
tionable condition that they would be paid from the 
first receipts from the sale of 1929 warrants; that, 
in any event, 1929 warrants could not be paid from 
the proceeds of earlier 1929 warrants sold to the 
City but can be paid only from school taxes levied 
for that year, when collected. We also claimed that 
there was no express trust relationship between the 
City and the holders of school warrants and, there- 
fore, the statute of limitations barred any action 
against the City on account of the alleged diversion 
of 1929 school funds. 

"The case was argued before Honorable Donald 
McKinlay who held that the transaction involving 
1928 school warrants was a purchase and not a 
loan; that those warrants could be paid only out 
of school taxes levied for the year 1928 when col- 
lected. However, the court sustained our argument 
that the holders of 1929 school warrants had no 
financial or beneficial interest in the proceeds of 
the sale of other 1929 school warrants, and they 
likewise must look for payment only out of school 
taxes levied for the year 1929, when collected, and 
to no other source. 

"The court did not pass upon the question of the 
statute of limitations considering it unnecessary to 
determine whether the part of the 1929 school 
funds used for payment of 1928 school tax antici- 
pation warrants was a trust fund in the City treas- 
ury to which the statute of limitations, does not 
apply or, whether the use of the 1929 school fund 
for the redemption of 1928 warrants, if illegal, im- 
posed only a constructive trust upon the city, which 
made the statute of limitations available as a de- 
fense. 

"This case is historic in the annals of litigation 
in which the City of Chicago has been involved and 
we will continue to employ all of our legal resources 
to sustain our victory by judgment in the last 
court of appeals." 
— Ordered Published and Placed on File. 

Alderman Bohling moved that Mr. Grossman and 
his associates be commended for the effort and skill 
displayed in the handling of the litigation. 

The motion prevailed.

remainder and because it would prevent the con- 
struction of a continuous sub-basement for any 
future building at this location. 

"After extended negotiations the owners have 
proposed that both parties stipulate that the own- 
ers convey to the City a permanent easement for 
street purposes in the 23 feet of the property imme- 
diately south of the south line of Randolph Street 
and extending from the west line of N. Wacker 
Drive to the east channel line of the South Branch 
of the Chicago River and also convey by temporary 
easement for construction purposes an additional 
27 feet lying immediately south of the permanent 
easement and extending between same limits. There 
are 2,001 square feet in the permanent easement 
and 2,447 square feet in the temporary easement. 
It is proposed that the City pay $19,550 for the 
permanent easement and $1,150 for the temporary 
easement, making a total of payment to the own- 
ers of $20,700. The owners agree that the judg- 
ment order shall provide that there are no damages 
to the remainder of the property as a result of the 
taking of the easements and the construction of 
the Wacker Drive Improvement and the Randolph 
Street Bridge. 

"An easement for this outfall sewer is urgently 
needed at this time but it will not be possible to 
have a hearing of the condemnation suit until the 
middle of September. This would seriously delay 
the work. Because of these factors and because 
our real estate appraisers have advised me that the 
price is reasonable, I have authorized the Corpora- 
tion Counsel to proceed to have a verdict and judg- 
ment entered in accordance with the proposed stip- 
ulation. 

"I therefore recommend that your committee rec- 
ommend to the City Council that it confirm my 
action in authorizing the Corporation Counsel to 
have a verdict and judgment entered in accordance 
with the proposed stipulation and that it authorize 
payment of the judgment in the amount of $20,700 
— this payment to be made from Motor Fuel Tax 
Funds."

of General Assembly. 

Also a proposed resolution reading as follows : 

The Ball Game Between the Chicago City 
Council and the Sixty-sixth General Assembly 

for 
Cancer Fund Foundation, University of Chicago. 
Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby extends the thanks of the people of 
Chicago to the aldermen, who, at the cost of one 
broken rib, one broken finger, one dislocated toe, 
three "Charley horses" and sundry annihilated rep- 
utations for athletic prowess, so nobly and con- 
vincingly sustained the indomitability of the "I 
Will" spirit of Chicago, and especially of Chicago 
officialdom, by winning by the astounding score of 
23 to 7 the ball game played on the evening of June 
25, 1949, between the teams composed of members 
of the Sixty-sixth General Assembly of the State of 
Illinois and Members of the Chicago City Council., 
It was both painful and delightful to watch them 
perform. It was particularly pleasing to witness the 
extent to which our colleagues were willing to go 
and the sacrifices they were willing to make for the 
sake of the reputation of Chicago, and as a demon- 
stration to our "Cubs" and our "White Sox" that 
the Will to Win is a part of the price of victory. 

Be It Further Resolved, That we take pride in 
noting the good sportsmanship and camaraderie 
displayed by His Excellency, Governor Adlai E. 
Stevenson, who contributed greatly to the pleasure 
and success of the occasion; 

Be It Further Resolved, That our thanks be ex- 
tended to His Honor, Mayor Martin H. Kennelly, 
whose cool and dignified appearance and gracious 
good humor at the game were so inspiring; to Al- 
derman Bohling, for his enthusiastic efforts in pro- 
moting the game and for his action, so in keeping 
With the true spirit of nonpartisanship which dom- 
inates the thoughts and actions of the Chicago City 
Council, in benching himself as a player; to Alder- 
man Bauler, who is famous for letting his quips fall 
where they may, for his inimitable performance as 
master of ceremonies ; to George and Walter Halas, 
who are accustomed to working with winners, and 
who, as a matter of civic pride, made it their busi- 
ness to see to it that the City's representatives 
looked and acted like winners. George Halas do- 
nated the uniforms and Walter Halas coached the 
team. From what they did with what they had to 
do, it is easy to understand what the "Halas wizard- 
ry" means; to John Ward of the Purchasing De- 
partment for his efforts in handling the business 
details of the game; and to Eddie Schreiber, who 
stilled his typewriter and put aside his pen to serve 
as bat boy for the aldermanic team. The judgment 
displayed by him in giving our players bats that 
would produce home runs encourages his many 



friends to believe he has finally found his proper 
calling. 

Be It Further Resolved, That in our victory, notice 
was not lacking of the tears shed by Representative 
James Adducci, manager of the team from the Gen- 
eral Assembly, and we hope such tears may not 
stultify the enthusiasm shown by members and 
boosters of their team. Where there is life there is 
hope. 

Be It Further Resolved, That thanks be extended 
to the many friends who aided in the promotion of 
this charity game, notably Maurice Goldblatt, James 
Keenan of Champlin-Shealy Company, Marty Ho- 
gan, Andy Frain, members of the Board of Educa- 
tion, members of the City's departments and em- 
ployees, and the newspaper and radio fraternities. 

Be It Further Resolved, That to insure that the 
glories of the deeds of our colleagues may live not 
only in the hearts and memories of their contempo- 
raries, but may be preserved as an example and in- 
spiration to future City Councils, and as a lasting 
warning to succeeding General Assemblies to stay 
in their own -class, the City Clerk is hereby directed 
to print the attached box score of this memorable 
game in the Journal of the City Council.

resolution was adopted.

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY OFFICERS. 



Birthday Greetings Extended to Charles N. Wheeler. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, conjointly 
with all the aldermen presented a proposed resolution 
reading as follows: 

Whereas, Thursday, July 28, 1949 marks the 
75th birthday of Charles N. Wheeler, one of Chi- 
cago's most illustrious newspapermen; and 

Whereas, During his many years in the news- 
paper field, totaling more than half a century, 
Charles Wheeler has built for himself a reputation 
of deep integrity, brilliance in writing, and keen 
analysis of the events and public questions of the 
day, and has won the high esteem and sincere 
friendship of all who have known him; 

Now, Therefore, as a token of the respect, 
admiration, and affection in which Charles N. 
Wheeler is universally held, Be It Resolved that the 
members of the City Council of the City of Chicago 
go on record in an expression of sincere birthday 
greetings, and of appreciation to Mr. Wheeler for 
his many years of distinguished work in the news- 
paper profession and the valuable contribution he 
has made to the life and progress of Chicago and 
its people. 

On motion of Alderman Cohen, seconded by Alder- 
man Merriam, the proposed resolution was adopted 
unanimously. 



Statement Reviewing City's Financial Problems — 
Referred. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, read to the 
City Council the following statement, Which was Or- 
dered Published and Referred to the Committee on 
Finance : 

"It seems proper at this time that I review with 
you the problems of the City Government as relat- 
ing to finances, and to comment on the legislative 
program which we presented to the Legislature at 
its recent session. 

"I am sure it is generally agreed that for the past 
two years we have been operating an economical 
City Government. When I refer to City Govern- 
ment I mean that government for which you, as 
members of the City Council, and I, as Mayor, are 
responsible, and which is separate and distinct 
from the other governmental agencies having the 
power of taxation in the City of Chicago. 

"The appropriations of the City Government for 
the year 1948 total $83,280,183, as against an ap- 
propriation for 1947 of $78,125,533 — an increase in 
1948 over 1947 of only 6.6 per cent. Our appropria- 
tions for 1949 totaled $85,972,798— an increase of 
only 3.2 per cent over 1948. 



"These appropriations were made at the height 
of the period of rising costs, and when the salvage 
at the end of 1948 is taken into consideration, it 
is shown that the cost of City Government, for 
which you gentlemen of the Council and I, as 
Mayor, are responsible, has increased little more 
than 4 per cent since we took office. 

"Real estate taxes too long have been carrying 
too heavy a burden of the cost of government — 
not only in the City of Chicago but in all com- 
munities throughout the State. I have said this 
many times. I say it again now. And since I be- 
came Mayor we have tried to do something about it. 

"The old established custom of increasing rev- 
enue by raising real estate taxes is inequitable. 
It is unfair that property owners and home owners 
— and they alone — should bear the brunt of the 
ever-increasing cost of local governments. 

"The records of this administration will show 
that we have strictly adhered to this policy. 

"A few years ago, real estate paid 75 per cent of 
City Government expenses. The budgets for 1948 
and 1949 show that in order to meet increased ex- 
penses we have increased the revenue from miscel- 
laneous sources so that real estate today is provid- 
ing only 48 per cent of the revenue, as against 52 
per cent from miscellaneous sources. 

"The 1948 tax bills in collection now offer a fur- 
ther example of our adherence to this policy. 

"So many of our citizens think of the tax bill as 
being the result of the City of Chicago's corporate 
fund operation. As a matter of fact, the approxi- 
mately 25 per cent increase in real estate taxes 
shown on the tax bills in collection now represent 
the tax levies of the six separate and distinct gov- 
ernmental agencies which have the power to levy 
taxes in the City of Chicago, and which, taken to- 
gether, make up the Chicago tax bill. 

"Following is a comparative statement showing 
the tax levies by these governmental agencies:

Fund increase was only 3.9 per cent. It was with 
this picture in mind, and with the determination 
to obtain increased funds without the necessity of 
raising real estate taxes that we approached the 
problem of needed additional revenue for the cor- 
porate fund of the City of Chicago. 

"For several years I have been saying that too 
much of the tax dollar goes to Springfield and to 
Washington, and not enough remains in the com- 
munities where the people live, where the revenue 
is produced, and where the tax money originates. 

"I have said repeatedly that the State and Fed- 
eral governments have taken unto themselves all 
of the principal sources of taxation, and that there- 
fore a share of this revenue must be returned to 
the cities and communities for local government 
purposes. 

"And that still goes ! 

"On the assumption that this principle had been 
recognized, early in January we started to talk to 
the State administration about city finances and 
the return to the cities and communities — not only 
Chicago but throughout the State — of a part of this 
tax revenue. We always recognized that Whatever 
was done for Chicago it would necessarily follow 
that other cities and communities in the State 
would receive! proportionate treatment. 

"We were requested to present a statement show- 
ing the amount of State funds we thought should 
be made available. Our overall estimates — which 
of course were only estimates — placed Chicago's 
overall needs at approximately $25,000,000 per year. 

"This figure included adjustments of wages to 
City employees, as well as replacements and im- 
provements in the physical plant of the City. 

"We were advised by the State administration 
that this figure was too high; that it would have 
to be reduced to about $10,000,000 a year. 

"A few weeks later we were informed that, 
because of the pressing needs of the Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium and similar institutions 
throughout the State, the amount must be further 
reduced- We were told that the plan of the State 
administration was to grant aid of $34,000,000 to 
the municipalities for the biennium, of which Chi- 
cago, we figured, would get about $17,000,000 or 
$8,500,000 per year. 

"Legislation was then drafted on this basis and 
presented to the Legislature. In order to make up 
some of the difference between the proposed State 
aid and our own calculations of the City's financial 
needs, we prepared and presented legislation known 
as the License Bills. 

"We estimated that the License Bills would pro- 
duce approximately 4 to 5 million dollars per year. 

"These License Bills, you will remember, had the 
unanimous approval of the City Council — the gov- 
erning body of the City of Chicago. 

"They were not presented on any political or 
party basis. 

"A non-partisan committee from the City Council 
was sent to Springfield to aid in the presentation 
of our program and in the passage of our legisla- 
tion. 

"In view of the record of this administration, 
which I have recited to you, the need of Chicago 
in my opinion should have received consideration 
on its merits only, and no other consideration should 
have been permitted to enter into the decision. 

"This legislation was passed in the House, but 
was defeated in the Senate. 

"I am not inclined to criticize members of any 
legislative body for the way they vote. That is 



their responsibility. But here was legislation which 
was sent to Springfield with the unanimous approval 
of the representatives of the people of this com- 
munity. What we were asking for was home rule 
on the question of city finances. 

"The bills were amended so that they would ex- 
pire in 1951 and so that the amount of revenue to 
be derived from this source would be pegged at 
$8,000,000. These were the points originally ob- 
jected to by those organizations which opposed 
this legislation. 

"That is the spirit in which the License Bills 
were presented. It is to be regretted that the 
objections and the vote on the legislation were not 
in the same spirit. 

"Now what happened to the aid-to-the-cities pro- 
gram which would have provided $34,000,000 to 
enable the cities and municipalities of the State to 
meet their obligations to the citizens ? 

"Chicago was to receive approximately $17,000,- 
000 of this for the biennium, or around $8,500,000 
per year. This would have permitted us to adjust 
the salaries of police, fire, health, and other essen- 
tial services, and to make some necessary improve- 
ments to City property. 

"This legislation passed the House. 

"But it was never voted upon in the Senate. All 
this talk about State aid went out the window at 
the last minute. 

"Orders were issued that it not be called up for 
a vote. We never even got the courtesy of a vote 
on such an important matter, which was generally 
recognized as a necessity. 

"One reason advanced for this action was that 
there was no point in passing the aid-to-cities bill 
because the bill extending the sales tax to provide 
further revenue for the State had been defeated. 

"I would like to make it clear that at no time 
was State aid to the cities contingent or dependent 
upon any extension of sales or any other taxes. 

"I had always assumed that the $34,000,000 to 
the cities for the biennium was going to be met 
from current revenue and from the State surplus 
we have all been talking about and hearing about 
for the past couple of years. 

"As a matter of fact, I thought it would be one 
of the first claims on that surplus, which, after all, 
is made up of excess funds created through the 
sales tax and other taxes collected by the State 
from the people of the communities. 

"In my opinion, not many items in the State 
budget could rate a preference over the State's obli- 
gation to return to the cities and communities a 
share of the excess revenues collected from the 
people of those communities, to be used by them 
for necessary wage adjustments in the police, fire, 
health and other essential services. 

"In this very brief review, it must be evident to 
you, the members of the City Council, that — in 
view of what didn't happen in Springfield — we will 
have trouble meeting our responsibilities to our 
employees and to the citizens generally if curtail- 
ment of services is found necessary. 

"This will continue to be true until there is a 
realization by all those charged with the responsi- 
bility of government, whether it be on local, state 
or national level, that there is a limit to the amount 
which the taxpayer is able to pay as his contribu- 
tion to the cost of government. 

"With the Federal and State governments usurp- 
ing unto themselves all the principal sources of 
revenue, this leaves the cities and municipalities 
only one source from which to obtain needed addi- 
tional revenue — and that is real estate.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



July 22, 1949 



"After all, the taxpayer has just so many dollars 
that he can contribute to the cost of government. 
This tax dollar should be spread more equitably. 

"A greater portion should be used in the cities 
and communities where the people live so that they 
will be able to maintain the essential services so 
vital to the everyday life of the people, without 
confiscating real estate. 

"In this connection, I think it is only fair to all 
concerned to mention that State spending has grown 
continuously. From 1931 to July 1, 1949, State 
expenditures for general government purposes, not 
including welfare and education, have increased 287 
per cent. The corporate fund of the City of Chicago 
government during the same period has increased 
only 54 per cent. 

"This offers a good example of the trend that has 
been going on, not only in this State but throughout 
the nation. State revenues have mounted constant- 
ly, while those of the City have remained compara- 
tively static, except for real estate tax revenue. 

"There must be an acceptance of the responsibil- 
ity of the State to share a fair portion of its sur- 
plus and increased revenues with the communities 
where these taxes are derived, in order that the 
vital services may be properly maintained. 

"My brief experience in public life has led me to 
the inevitable conclusion that there is too much 
politics in government. Too often, important mat- 
ters are determined on the basis of what is most 
expedient politically, rather than what is best for 
the people." 

Aldermen Duffy, Wagner, Merryman, Keane, Egan, 
Bohling, Carey, DuBois, Merriam and Geisler expressed 
concurrence in the Mayor's views as outlined in his 
statement and commended him for his stand in refer- 
ence to the City's financial problems.

Alderman Janousek (seconded by Alderman Pistilli) 
thereupon moved to reconsider the foregoing vote. 

The motion was lost. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Ordinance 
Confirming Sale of $18,350,000 Bonds of the City 

of Chicago. 

Whereas, The ordinances authorizing five of the 
. issues of bonds aggregating $16,350,000 for various 
public improvements hereinafter described provided 
that such bonds bear interest at the rate of 1%% 
per annum, which was the prevailing rate of in- 
terest upon such bonds at the time the elections 
were held where a majority of the electors voting 
upon the question approved such ordinances and the 
issue of bonds in the amount of $2,000,000 for vot- 
ing machines hereinafter described bear interest at 
the rate of not to exceed 3% per annum; and 

Whereas, Money market conditions throughout 
the United States have materially changed since 
such elections were held, interest rates having in- 
creased upon all types of securities even to the ex- 
tent of affecting the value of billions of outstand- 
ing U. S. Government bonds and drastically decreas- 
ing the market value of millions of bonds of mu- 
nicipalities that have been voted bearing a fixed 
rate of interest; and 

Whereas, The City Comptroller has given ex- 
tended publicity of the proposed sale of the six 
issues of bonds aggregating $18,350,000 hereinafter 
described by advertisement in Chicago Journal of 
Commerce, a newspaper having a general circula- 
tion in the City of Chicago, and in The Bond Buyer, 
a financial newspaper published in the City of New 
York, New York, such publication having been 
made at least ten days prior to the date of such 
sale, so as to determine the market value of such 
bonds, and five (5) bids for their purchase have 
been received, all of which offers to purchase said 
five issues of bonds bearing 1%% interest are at 
less than the par value thereof, and the offers to 
purchase the issue of bonds bearing not to exceed 
3% interest are at not less than the par value there- 
of and accrued interest; and 

Whereas, In order that the various improve- 
ments contemplated to be made from the proceeds 
of said five issues of 1%% bonds can be made, it 
is necessary that such bonds be sold at this time at 
the best price obtainable as determined by the busi-

The following communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways, addressed to 
the chairman and members of the Committee on Fi- 
nance under date of June 17, 1949 (signed by V. E. 
Gunlock), was attached to the foregoing order: 

"This is to certify to the satisfactory completion 
of Contract D-6F of the Dearborn Street Subway 
by the Kenny Construction Co. Not Inc., Contractor. 
This work provided for the construction of the 
incline connection between the north end of the 
subway constructed under a previous contract and 
the existing elevated structure adjacent to N. Mil- 
waukee Avenue near W. Evergreen Avenue. This 
contract was authorized by the City Council on 
January 30, 1946 (see CJ p. 5091). The contract 
consisted of work estimated at $350,548.00, to be 
paid from PWA funds, and $187,912.00, to be paid 
from non-PWA funds. This non-PWA work in- 
cluded track, power and signal work to be installed 
by the Chicago Rapid Transit Company at an esti- 
mated cost to the City of $152,912.00. This work 
was assigned to the Chicago Transit Authority at 
the time they took over operation of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company, as authorized by the City 
Council on October 15, 1947 (see CJ p. 1004). 

"As most of the traction work would remain idle 
until the Dearborn Street 'Subway was placed in 
operation, the Chicago Transit Authority has in- 
stalled only the material and equipment that were 
required to complete Contract D-6F. It is planned 
to install the remaining work under Contract T-12 
which is now being advertised for bids. 

"The cost to the City of the traction work com- 
pleted under this contract amounted to $78,160.04, 
or $74,751.96 less than the amount authorized. 
On October 17, 1947 (see CJ p. 1004) the City 
Council authorized final payment for the work per- 
formed by the Chicago Transit Authority and its 
predecessor. 

"The final cost of the PWA work amounted to 
$339,356.01, or $11,191.99 less than the original 
amount authorized. The contractor has been paid 
a total of $322,421.65 for this PWA work, leaving 
a balance unpaid of $16,934.36. 

"The final cost of the non-PWA work including 
the work performed by the Chicago Transit Author- 
ity amounted to $114,588.49, or $73,323.71 less than 
the original amount authorized. The contractor 
has been paid a total of $111,252.88, leaving a bal- 
ance unpaid of $3,335.41. 

"The contractor has filed claims for extra ex- 
penses incurred which he 1 states resulted from de- 
lays in the delivery of structural steel furnished 
by the City and for overtime wages paid to their 
workmen. However, we do not agree with these 
claims and do not recommend their approval. 

"Attached herewith are photostat copies of let- 
ters from other city departments advising us they 
have no claim against the contractor as a result 
of the work under this contract. Also attached is 
a photostat copy of the approval by the Project 
Engineer PWA of the final PWA cost of the work. 

"It is recommended therefore, inasmuch as all 
work is satisfactorily completed and there are no 
claims against the contractor, that the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways be author- 
ized to pay the Kenny Construction Co. Not Inc. 
the final amounts of $16,934.36, and $3,335.41, re-

The following communication from the Corporation 
Counsel addressed to the chairman and members of 
the Committee on Finance under date of June 22, 
1949 (signed by John C. Melaniphy, Assistant Corpo- 
ration Counsel) was attached to the foregoing order: 

"Among the cases filed against the City of Chi- 
cago arising out of the construction of the State 
Street Subway is William Scott Bond, Philip F. W. 
Peck and Alfred M. Rogers, Trustees of the Estate 
of L. Z. Leiter vs. City of Chicago, Circuit Court 
No. U C 962. The suit was filed on January 27, 
1944, by Mayer, Meyer, Austrian & Piatt and Wins- 
ton, Strawn & Shaw, attorneys for plaintiffs who 
are the owners of the property known as 401-441 
South State Street, extending from Van Buren 
Street to Congress Street, to recover damages in 
the sum of Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars 
($250,000.00). The building has nine stories and 
basement and had spread footing foundations. The 
building is occupied by Sears, Roebuck & Co. 

"After extended negotiations, the plaintiffs have 
agreed to accept the sum of Fifty-two Thousand 
Five Hundred Dollars ($52,500.00) in full settle- 
ment of this suit. 



"The usual notice by the Subway Department of 
the City advising the owners of the property that 
the subway was to be constructed in and under 
State Street, and that said owners should take such 
measures as they deem necessary in order to pro- 
tect their property was given on May 18, 1939. 
Plaintiffs thereupon engaged Mundie, Jensen, 
Bourke & Havens, Architects, to advise them as to 
what measures were necessary to protect the build- 
ing. As a result thereof, plaintiffs, through their 
contractors, constructed ten caissons along the 
West wall of the building (State Street side) and 
shored the second row of columns to prevent settle- 
ment. This also entailed the restoration of walls, 
sidewalks, steam fitting, plumbing, electrical and 
other work. Plaintiffs expended Two Hundred Thou- 
sand Six Hundred Eighty-six Dollars and Four 
Cents ($200,686.04) for this work. Of this amount, 
One Hundred Forty-one Thousand Five Hundred 
Seventeen Dollars and Eleven Cents ($141,517.11) 
was directly chargeable to the protective measures 
by the engineers for the City. Whether the balance, 
or any part thereof, was incurred as a direct result 
of the construction of caissons and shoring and 
were damages compensable in law and the question 
of benefits flowing from the improvement were in 
dispute. 

"The subway tubes were constructed in and under 
State Street adjacent to this property during the 
months of April 1940 and June 1940. The auxil- 
iary structures, being the station and subway en- 
trance in the sidewalk area in front of the building, 
were constructed during the months from August 
1940 to July 1941. 

"Mr. V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways, has participated in our confer- 
ences with the representatives of the plaintiffs and 
he joins in our recommendation that this settlement 
be authorized. We attach hereto his letter of rec- 
ommendation. 

"We therefore recommend that the Corporation 
Counsel be authorized to have a judgment entered 
against the City of Chicago in the above entitled 
cause in the sum of Fifty-two Thousand Five Hun- 
dred Dollars ($52,500.00) and statutory costs." 



Authority Given for Reimbursement of Slum Clearance 
Bond Fund from Special Real Estate Fund. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending that the following proposed order sub- 
mitted therewith do pass: 

Ordered, That the City Comptroller, in accord- 
ance with the. request of the Commissioner of Sub- 
ways and Superhighways dated July 14, 1949, be 
and he is hereby authorized to reimburse the Slum 
Clearance Bond Fund, Account 436-S-12, in the 
amount of $4,285.97, out of the Special Real Estate 
Fund made up of revenue received from properties 
acquired for right-of-way for the Congress Street 
Superhighway, on account of expense incurred by 
the Housing and Redevelopment Co-ordinator in 
the rehousing of families moved or to be moved in 
connection with the Congress Street Superhighway. 

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
order was passed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, Carey, Cohen,

COMMITTEE ON HOUSING. 



Approval Given to Application by Chicago Housing 

Authority to Public Housing Administration for 

Preliminary Loan for Surveys and Planning 

Pursuant to Housing Act of 1949. 

The Committee on Housing submitted the following 
report: 

Chicago, July 15, 1949. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Housing, to which was re- 
ferred (July 8, 1949, page 4474) a proposed resolu- 
tion together with a letter from the Chicago Hous- 
ing Authority, transmitted with a communication 
from Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, for ap- 
proval by the City Council of an application by the 
Chicago Housing Authority to the Public Housing 
Administration for a preliminary loan of $720,000.00 
for surveys and planning pursuant to the Housing 
Act of 1949, begs leave to recommend that Your

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



July 22, 1949 



Honorable Body do adopt the said proposed resolu- 
tion for approval of said application. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) William J. Lancaster, 

Chairman. 

Alderman Lancaster moved to concur in the com- 
mittee's recommendation and adopt the proposed reso- 
lution transmitted therewith. 

Alderman Wagner (seconded by Alderman Immel) 
moved to amend as follows : 

Amend the last paragraph of that portion of the 
form of application set out in the proposed resolu- 
tion designated "3. Six- Year Program", to read as 

follows : 

"The prime purpose of this program is to con- 
tribute to the rebuilding of the slums of the city. 
This can be done in orderly fashion, however, 
only if there is housing available to take care of 
the families who will necessarily be displaced by 
slum clearance. This accounts for the empha- 
sis, in the first half of the program, on construc- 
tion of projects on vacant land, since at the pres- 
ent time Chicago has one of the lowest vacancy 
rates in the country. This program will be re- 
viewed periodically by the Chicago Housing Au- 
thority and by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago and is subject to revision and such revo- 
cation as will bring about as close a correlation 
as possible between the activities of the Chicago 
Land Clearance Commission under Title I of the 
Housing Act of 1949, and the activities of the 
Chicago Housing Authority under Title III of 
the Act, and changes effected from time to time 
by economic conditions and the supply of hous- 
ing by private enterprise."' 

The motion to amend prevailed. 

The question next being put on the adoption of the 
proposed resolution as amended, the vote thereon was 
as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, Carey, Cohen, 
Merriam, Hogan, Bohling, Pacini, Wall, Wagner, Mur- 
phy, Duffy, Pistilli, Ropa, Janousek, Tourek, London,

Freeman — 35. 

Nays — Aldermen Olin, DuBois, Kucharski, Egan, 
Sheridan, Orlikoski, Ringa, Burmeister, Weber — 9. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, the Congress of the United States has 
passed the Housing Act of 1949 which authorizes 
local housing authorities to construct 810,000 
public low-rent housing units during the next six 
years; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Housing Authority (some- 
times hereinafter called the "Authority") has ad- 
vised the Mayor and the City Council that there 
is a need, in Chicago, for at least 270,000 stand- 
ard dwellings; that of this number, over 87,000 
are needed at rentals below $43.00 per month; 
and that the need for these 87,000 dwellings is 
not being met by private enterprise; and 

Whereas, the Mayor and Council of the City of 
Chicago, in the interest of the welfare of all the 
citizens of Chicago and of the community as a 
whole, desire to take maximum advantage of the 
possibilities for building low-rent housing pro- 
vided by the Housing Act of 1949; and 



Whereas, the Housing Act of 1949 provides that 
the Authority must submit to the federal gov- 
ernment, in support of its application for prelim- 
inary loan funds for surveys and planning, a res- 
olution by the Council of the City of Chicago ap- 
proving the application of the Authority: 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City: of 

Chicago : 

1. Approval is hereby given to the "Application 
by the Chicago Housing Authority to the Public 
Housing Administration for a Preliminary Loan for 
Surveys and Planning Pursuant to The Housing Act 
of 1949," which reads as follows: 

"Application by the Chicago Housing Authority 

to the Public Housing Administration for a 

Preliminary Loan for Surveys and Planning 

Pursuant to the Housing Act of 1949. 

"1. In accordance with Section 301 of the Hous- 
ing Act of 1949 the Chicago Housing Authority 
hereby makes application to the Public Housing Ad- 
ministration for a Preliminary Loan in the amount 
of $720,000 for the purpose of surveys, land plan- 
ning and project design in connection with low-rent 
public housing projects to be constructed pursuant 
to the Housing Act of 1949. In support of this 
application, and as required by Section 301 of the 
Act, there is attached a resolution of the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago approving this appli- 
cation. 

"2. Need for Low-Rent Housing in Chicago. 

"There is attached hereto a 'Statement of Chi- 
cago's Housing Need'. This indicates that the min- 
imum need for additional housing accommodations 
in Chicago today is upwards of 270,000 dwellings. 
This need derives from the following sources: 

"For Families now doubled up 95,000 

For Families in the worst substandard 

units 144,000 

For a minimum vacancy reserve of 3.5 

per cent 33,000 



Total 272,000 

"An analysis of family incomes and existing prac- 
tices as to the amount of income spent for housing 
shows that of this total minimum need of 272,000 
dwellings, 87,130 are required for families with an- 
nual incomes of less than $2,600, renting at below 
$43.00 per month.

ity presents herewith an outline of a preliminary 
six-year program covering the construction of hous- 
ing both on slum and vacant areas. 

"This program contemplates the building of 40,-

This can be done in orderly fashion, however, only

first half of the program, on construction of proj-

cago has one of the lowest vacancy rates in the 
country. This program will be reviewed period- 
ically by the Chicago Housing Authority and by 
the City Council of the City of Chicago and is sub- 
ject to revision and such revocation as will bring 
about as close a correlation as possible between the 
activities of the Chicago Land Clearance Commis- 
sion under Title I of the Housing Act of 1949, and 
the activities of the Chicago Housing Authority un- 
der Title HI of the Act, and changes effective from 
time to time by economic conditions and the sup- 
ply of housing by private enterprise. 

"4. Planning Funds. 

"Pursuant to Section 301 of the Housing Act of 
1949, we request $720,000 for physical planning and 
surveys. This sum is related to the first two years 
of the program. Thus, in the first year it will be 
necessary to plan ahead for two years of land ac- 
quisition and construction. Specifically, the pro- 
gram calls for planning, in the first year, for the 
acquisition of vacant land for and the construc- 
tion thereon of 7000 units, and for the acquisition 
of slum land sufficient for 5,000 units to be con- 
structed in the third and fourth years. 

"The planning activities provided for by this 
sum will include close coordination of the Author- 
ity's site selection program with the City's overall 
plan for development in both in-lying and out-ly- 
ing areas, as well as integration with the plans of 
other local governmental agencies such as the Plan 
Commission, the Board of Education and the Park 
District. 

"5. Earmarking for Future. 

"Finally, we request that the following additional 
funds be earmarked for the first year's activity, for 
the purposes indicated: 

1. Cost of acquisition of vacant 
land for and construction there- 
on of 3000 units $33,000,000 
Cost of acquisition of sufficient 
slum land to accommodate 2000 
units to be constructed later 4,000,000

The following statement is referred to in the form 
of application embodied in the foregoing resolution : 

Statement of Chicago's Housing Need 

Three main sources of need for additional hous- 
ing exist in Chicago today: families now doubled 
up, families living under substandard conditions, 
and provision of enough vacancies for a minimum 
degree of mobility. 

The population and income survey of the Chi- 
cago area, made by the Chicago Tribune in 1947, 
shows there are 15.7 per cent or 165,000 more fam- 
ilies (including roomers and lodgers) than dwell- 
ings. The number of single-person roomers and 
lodgers is subtracted from this figure as not con- 
stituting demand, and the resulting number of 
two-or-more-person, doubled-up families is 106,000. 
Of these, 11,000 are considered to be doubled up 
for reasons other than economic, leaving the net 
number of doubled-up families requiring housing as 
95,000. The estimated number of doubled-up fam- 
ilies is substantiated by the difference between total 
families and total dwellings. 

The 1940 Census of Housing shows that in the 
blighted areas delineated by the Chicago Plan Com- 
mission there were 144,000 dwelling units. While it 
is known that since 1940, living conditions in the 
blighted areas have generally grown worse rather 
than better, some of the dwellings are not quite sub- 
standard and may have useful life remaining. How- 
ever, there is a large number of additional sub- 
standard dwellings located mainly in the surround- 
ing near-blighted areas. As it is believed that this 
number is greater than the number of dwellings 
with useful life remaining to be preserved in the re- 
development of the blighted areas, it is safe to con- 
sider for replacement purposes that at least 144,000 
dwellings occupied by 144,000 primary families, for 
whom additional housing is needed, will be cleared 
and should, therefore, be counted in the housing 
need. 

The percentage of dwellings desirable as a va- 
cancy reserve has been variously set at about 5 
per cent. In the interest of being on the conserva- 
tive side, a ratio of 3.5 per cent is used. Apply- 
ing this ratio to the total number of existing dwell- 
ings (1,050,000/ based upon the 1940 Census and 
construction since) and to the number of additional 
dwellings needed for doubled-up families (95,000), 
a vacancy reserve of 40,000 appears necessary. 

Theoretically, a small part of this reserve exists 
today if the vacancy ratio of 0.7 per cent (or 7,000 
units) found by the 1947 sample census is ac- 
cepted. This reduces the additional vacancy re- 
serve needed to 33,000 units.

For families now doubled up 95,000 

For families in blighted areas 144,000 
For 3.5 vacancy reserve 33,000 



Additional dwellings needed — Total 



272,000 



Rental housing is virtually unavailable. The bulk 
of units comprising the 0.7 per cent vacancies re- 
ferred to above consists of purchase units, both de- 
tached houses and "cooperative" and other apart- 
ments in multiple structures. During the last thirty 
months, about 2,200 dwellings in multiple struc- 
tures were started, according to current data from 
the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is a relatively 
insignificant number of new rental dwellings, con- 
sidering that all rental units probably are contained 
within these multiple structures and that the bulk of 
these structures comprise "cooperative" apart- 
ments.

Of the small number of dwellings actually mar- 
keted for rent, the lowest rentals obtained, accord- 
ing to records of the Federal Housing Administra- 
tion, were in a development in which five rooms 
rented for $100 a month and six rooms for $115. 
Practically no new housing in Chicago is built to 
sell at less than $8,000 and only about six of every 
100 new houses at less than $10,000. At these 
prices, families earning less than $3,000, paying 
even 2% times their annual income, cannot pur- 
chase houses today. 

The amount of money families can spend for 
housing is closely governed by their income. The 
following table shows the distribution of annual in- 
comes in 1949 of the two groups for whom housing 
is needed, as well as dwellings needed for the va- 
cancy reserve according to the income distribution 
of the total population. These income data are 
taken primarily from data in the 1947 Chicago Trib- 
une Survey, checked with other 1947 income mate- 
rial for accuracy. The 1947 data are used as a 
reasonable reflection of 1949 income because of the 
upward and subsequent downward trend since 1947.

! Annual family income includes gross income of 
all members. 

A study of the ratio of rent-to-income and of the 
purchase-price-to-income shows (1) families pay a 
smaller portion of their incomes for housing as 
their incomes increase and (2) family size has little 
significance to the proportion of income paid for 
rent. An analysis of data from the 1944 Family Ex- 
penditures Study of the Bureau of Labor Statis- 
tics and the 1939 Census of Family Income, and 
similar studies for 1947, leads to the conclusion 
that in 1939-44 families generally spent a larger 
proportion of their incomes for housing than they 
have in the last two years. The higher ratios are 
used to determine various levels of housing need in 
terms of monthly payment ability. 

Nature of Housing Need 

The approximate nature of the 272,000 dwell- 
ings needed, in terms of monthly payments, either 
for rent or for purchase, is shown in the following
